The Egyptian Book of Gates is the second large Pharaonic Book of the Afterlife after The Egyptian Amduat.
The revised English translation is based on the German edition, edited by Erik Hornung.
The hieroglyphs and transcriptions are given on the basis of a collation of the extant texts found in different tombs. The main illustrations of the text come from the sarcophagus of Seti I.
The 100 scenes of the Book of Gates are furthermore represented with one or more colored illustrations, originating from different sources.
